It looks like the snide, potty-mouthed denizens of “South Park” are going to take on The Situation and Snooki. Good luck with that, you Colorado pantywaists.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the sicko (and now very rich) creators of the animated Comedy Central hit — are taking a stand against New Jersey, according to a press release Thursday from the cable network. The showdown is Oct. 13.
“New Jersey is rapidly taking over the nation one state at a time and their next stop is ‘South Park’ in an all-new episode of titled, ‘New Jersey,'” the release said.
“Everything east of the Rockies is now part of New Jersey! South Park is in danger of becoming West Jersey within the week,” according to the announcement. “As the Jerseyites spill into Colorado and approach South Park, Randy and the boys stand strong against the onslaught.”
Try and stop us, Stone and Parker. You both must be having a Rocky Mountain high if you think you can can get the best of the Garden State. Haven’t you ever seen the popular T-shirt, “New Jersey: Only the strong survive.”
One shot from the Jersey “South Park” episode depicts members of the bronzed and vulgar crew of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” namely DJ Pauly D and The Situation, who inexplicably hasn’t been booted yet from “Dancing With the Stars.” Those two tanned, gelled Shore rats are leading a band of Jerseyites against South Park.
Another still shot has a “South Park” character wielding a “No Jersey” sign.
Perhaps we’ll also see “cast” members from other Jersey-based reality shows, like “Jerseylicious” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” on “South Park.”
Hollywood can’t seem to get enough of Jersey. We understand that tonight’s episode of “Bones” features a visit to the Garden State.
Not fur nuthin, but the appearance of “Jersey Shore” characters on “South Park” actually shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, since MTV and Comedy Central are both owned by the media giant Viacom.
And here’s a little secret for you: Doug Herzog, former Comedy Central chief and now president of the MTV Networks Entertainment Group (which includes Comedy Central) is from New Jersey. The city of Paterson, we believe. Et tu, Brute?
Comedy Central said there is no one available to talk about the episode, but that a clip of it will soon be posted on the “South Park” website.
Launched in 1997, “South Park,” now in its 14th season, remains the highest-rated series on Comedy Central. The show put the network, and Herzog, on the map.
